Video: A Tour of My Kitchen!

Pin It

I’ve posted a few cooking videos on the blog, and it seems like every time I do someone always asks if they can get a full tour. Our kitchen is certainly not perfect or up to model home standards, but we have worked hard to organize and stock it with just about everything we need to make real food. So just for fun here’s a look inside some of our cabinets including our kitchen’s best kept secret …the back pantry! With the kids back in school it’s the perfect time to work on getting organized, so hopefully this will give you some ideas.

Also if you want to see more detail about any of my kitchen tools that you saw in the video be sure to check out My Kitchen Essentials page.

The Big Day Is Tomorrow!

I keep trying to tell myself that tomorrow is just a regular day, but so far I’ve not been very good at tricking myself! I feel like my body is abuzz and my mind is racing, but I guess that’s what happens you watch over 2 years of your hard work finally come to fruition all on one day! I am talking about my cookbook release date tomorrow of course. I just cannot believe it’s finally here – eeeek!

This contest is now closed and the winner has been selected! Congrats to…

Judy J.!

I am excited to announce the next prize in our big giveaway series as we count down to the release of my cookbook on Tuesday!

Today, I am giving away over $600 in appliances that I know you’ll love …a Bosch Universal Plus Mixer and a Nutrimill Grain Mill! Now I am calling the Bosch appliance a “mixer,” but much to my surprise it’s much more than that. It can be your blender, meat grinder, pasta maker, and so much more. And I actually personally own a Nutrimill for grinding my own grains. I love it because it gives my baked goods a superior flavor and I can be sure that no nutrition was lost along the way.

1 Winner Will Receive:

  • A Bosch Universal Plus Mixer – $399 value
  • A Nutrimill Grain Mill – $219 value

The Bosch Universal Plus Mixer is the ultimate kitchen companion with many uses. Your family will enjoy fresh, homemade meals with the versatility of this machine. Knead up to 15 pounds of dough, whip cream, and stir batters. You can purchase additional attachments to turn it into a blender, shredder/slicer, or meat grinder. The attachments are easy to use and easy to clean.

Giveaway: Organic Cotton “My Green” Mattress!

This contest is now closed and the winner has been selected! Congrats to…

Stephanie H.!

I am excited to announce the second prize in our big giveaway series as we count down to the release of my cookbook on Tuesday! (The first one was on Facebook this morning in case you missed it.)

So this next prize is a big ticket item that I know many of you would love to have – a high-quality organic cotton mattress worth almost $500! Think about how many hours of your life are spent laying smack dab on top of your mattress. So as careful as we are with the food we eat, the house cleaners we use, and the cosmetics we apply – we should also be thinking about the unwanted chemicals that unfortunately come with a conventional mattress.

My husband and I were recently in the market for a new mattress ourselves, and I was taken aback when I was told that it would take at least a few days for it to “off-gas.” Is it just me or does something about that not sound right? So I am really thankful that someone had the bright idea to start manufacturing beds with more responsible materials.

And for anyone who is currently mattress shopping and interested in this type of product …be sure to use the coupon code “100Real” to receive 10% off of any product from our sponsor, My Green Mattress. Continue Reading »

Video: Think Outside the Sandwich!

School is back in session for many, and I’d love to encourage parents (and kids!) to “Think Outside The Sandwich” when it comes to packing school lunches. I know PB&J or Ham and Cheese is predictable and easy, but eating a variety of real food is important. And there truly are so many more options when you put you mind to it. So today I am sharing 4 ideas that I presented on the Charlotte Today show last week – several of which are recipes that will be in my upcoming cookbook (out a week from today)!

I’d love for you to share your non-sandwich lunch ideas in the comments below.
